Faces of Faith
FOF is a unique way of hearing the stories of people from other faith traditions. Once a year we have had any where from a dozen to thirty people discuss what it means for them to be a Buddhist or a Baptist, a Mormon or a Muslim, a Jew or a Hindu or a Catholic, etc.
This year’s program was held on Sunday, January 15th, at the Zion Lutheran Church in Ann Arbor. We asked six religious leaders to speak to the whole group about “What is it in your religion that brings you joy?” and “What is it about your religion that you never want to hear again from others?” Following each talk there was time for small group discussion and question and answers. Over 150 came to this annual event. Over the next two months, our planning team will consider what format to use next year. Thanks to those who came this year!
Religions and religious leaders last year were:
Islam – Imam Yahya Luqman
Judaism – Rabbi Robert Dobrusin
Christianity – Rev. Marie Duquette
Sikhism – Jaspreet Singh
Unitarian Universalism – Rev. Lindasusan Ulrich
Baha’i – Eric Bell and Amy Whitebell
Next Year’s Date: Sunday, January 14, 2018 (watch for details as we get closer to January)
